Julian Daum

I’m a freelance journalist, reporter and editor from Berlin, Germany, currently working for several online and print newspapers including Berliner Zeitung, Business Punk and German-Arabic Al Ard Magazine.

In my work, I focus on Berlin, Migration Politics and New/Digital Economy. Due to my personal interests, I’m also specialised in Pop- and Internet Culture.

 

This is my personal blog. This is Pop and Pulp. Everything that doesn’t go into my work goes here. Why write about the banal and the smut? Because nothing really is.

Pop culture, in fact, has a huge impact on societies. I believe that a society is mirrored by its pop and mass culture. It turns daily life into art, accessible to everyone, and everyone is part of it. Therefore it is the most democratic (and capitalist) form of art there is.

Read stories about the amazing world of banality and views on society from a mass cultural perspective. Expect everything ranging from music, films and books to urban life, drugs, violence, politics, sexistische Kackscheiße and whatsoever.

“I never thought David Bowie would ever do such a banal thing as dying.” L. R.

“I believe, a passionate journalist can barely write an article without subconsciously wanting to change reality.” R. A.

“Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives… and to the good life, whatever it is and wherever it happens to be.” H. S. T.
